    Straight forward without the weepy emotionalism common to too many of it's ilk.

    Gene Sharp has succeeded in laying out a usable, sensible and sensitive enough document to make it an essential read for anyone interested in confronting authoritarian power structures. He makes no emotional pleas, no over arching vlaue prescriptions and lays out a convincing case for how and why a non-violent movement can win power back for a people seeking liberty. This isn't going to be a page turner for anyone who isn't already fundamentally interested in the subject, but those who are will find it thought provoking, well organized and with well thought out proposals.

    A powerful short essay on strategically defeating dictators

    Political scientist Gene Sharp wrote this powerful essay in 1993 to support the resistance movement in Burma, where the government sentenced people who owned this booklet to seven years in jail. Since then, opponents of oppression - most notably in the Arab uprisings of 2011 - have distributed this text widely to political and social activists who want to apply Sharp's 40 years of research, experience and writing about nonviolent struggles, dictatorships and resistance movements. Sharp distills his work on political theory and sociology into a readable, tight, practical volume. Its appendix lists dozens of specific tactics for organizers who want to mount peaceful campaigns against established oppressive forces. getAbstract recommends this influential pamphlet to everybody interested in understanding how peaceful revolutions work.
